Stopped in on a Thursday afternoon and had the place all to myself. Very peaceful and well worth a slight detour from the Riverwalk.

I don't know, but the bulletin is posted outside the church and the rectory is on the grounds about 100 feet from the church entrance. Sorry, I can't help.

I didn't see any steps in front but I believe ther is access in the back. This is a beautiful old church. I suggest you phone them.
